Do you remember the last time that you felt loved? It probably stemmed from something someone did for you. Maybe it was a word of encouragement, an unexpected gift or simply a funny picture you received. With the 30 Days of Love Campaign, we have the opportunity to do something for our neighbors and pass the love on. Your neighbor could be next door, down the street, at your office, the car behind you in the drive-thru line or right in your own home. Use this list to jump start your own ideas and start being rich in what matters most - love.
